got from rick santorum, remember him, was a political overture wrapped around the idea of buying made in the usa christmas presents. yeah, rick santorum, it wasn't about evil obama care or how horrible it is that gay people want to get married or some imagined war on religion or any of the others rick santorum skm shtick, it was all about buying made in the usa stuff. i am thankful to report that the republican governor of iowa, terry branstad, is suggesting that the iowa republican party should get rid of its straw poll. not suggesting getting rid of the iowa caucuses, just the straw poll. which is not a real poll or a real election of any kind, just a republican party fund-raiser, where republican candidates bribe people and bus in people from all over the state for a big fake contest that the national media threat as a real thing. the iowa straw poll means nothing. it is a hoax that the republican party of iowa perpetrates on the country and the candidates every year, and the media goes along with it, every year, even though we all know that's true. but now the republican governor
romney ended up one on one with rick santorum. iowa where romney appeared to eke out an eight-vote win, a few weeks later santorum was declared the victory and then ohio. >> we are actually looking at recount provisions in the state of ohio. our models have it that close. >> romney's struggle in ohio was in the 2008 op-ed called for a managed bankruptcy but said the government should only guarantee private loans. detroit needs a turnaround not a check. the piece was titled let detroit go bankrupt. romney survived the primary gauntlet and let republican super pacs hammer the president on the hair. the campaign spend a lot of time defining romney before romney was able to define obama. he was criticized for taking a week off in july. and for bungling that foreign trip to england, israel and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce the bump he needed. as the focus of the race turned to medicare and the ryan budget. the republican convention was disrupted by weather and a guy talking to an empty chair. and then mid september, the leaked video of mitt romne
, mike huckabee or rick santorum and none of them can win. >> let me play real quick, a.b., this conversation between ann coulter and laura ingram, again, trying to in their minds figure out what happened with governor romney. let me play it. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tips point habben reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't like he was connecting with the material. i think you have to connect with the material. maybe it's people who have actually been in the trenches for decades, not just someone that was a success in business. >> in the trenches like a community organizer and not just a business guy? i mean, what is -- we in some kind of topsy-turvy world now suddenly his business background was nothing? >> there's a lot of rationalizing going on on the republican side because the win was much bigger than -- if they thought that obama was going to beat romney, that he would eek it out and they did not expect 303 and possible 332 electoral vote fs obam
santorum. good evening, senator. how are you? >> i'm doing graleat. how are you? >> we'll get to the fiscal cliff in a moment. first i want to ask you about david petraeus, certainly one of the greater men in my lifetime and a man of modern history. what do you feel about what's happened? >> well, it's very disturbing to be in a position like the director of the central intelligence agency. we all have our personal failings, and none of us are perfect, but to put yourself in that type of position and engage in activity which is -- could compromise your ability to do your job is something that is very, very disturbing and shows incredibly poor judgment, not just, obviously, for breaking his marital vows but for putting himself in a position that could compromise the agency. that is really very disturbing. that's the only way i can put it that he would engage in such conduct. >> there will be some people watching this, as they always do when these sort of sex scandals break who say, what will we do about his ability to do his skw job? what would you say in this case? >> this is a man who had

'm surprised that santorumed you. >> i forgot the east. i had the north. >> we have the name nor'easter. >> don't test me the day after election day. y the first use was way back in the 1600s with a brit, sailor who mentioned the wind coming out of the north and east. i want to show you an incredible picture of a neater this. was the blizzard of 2006. look how it took almost a tropical characteristic. see the eye developing there off the delmarva peninsula. these storms ride along a gulf stream so they get that warm, moist energy and then they cap into arctic air off it the north and west. that is why we often see the terrible effects we do. the coastal erosion. >> that is how we get our big winter weather. >> when we get our big storms, that is what happened. let's go back to max 2. the nor'easter for today, i want to mention some of the effects of this one. we are sort of on the southwestern side of this one today so the worst effect will be to you are on north. 40 to 50-mile an hour wind gust along the coast, high surf, coastal flooding. again, in the winter months, if this were january, feb
't have won last night. rick santorum wouldn't have won last night. here is where the problem comes in. the republics need a conservative with charisma. and it's got to be the kind of candidate who is smart enough to explain to these groups like women, latinos, young voters, and they have to stop this bible-based bashing of gay people. they have to bring these people in without, without seeing out their conservative principles. >> bill: that's of the hard part because young single women in order to get them in the tent many of them you have got to throw the abortion issue out the wind doe. that's a core fundamental belief you can't do. >> that's the problem. any time -- you are absolutely right. absolutely. abortion should be thrown out the window, not as an issue but, you could still be pro-life and say, hey, this is not one of the things i'm going to be talking about during the campaign. you don't sell out your pro-life principles but you don't make abortion a big issue because there are too many women out there who say, you know, there is war on women. i mean, this -- they concocted

as evangelicals, supported rick santorum over mitt romney, many uneasy on his views like abortion and his moremmon faith >> you originally said that the romney campaign snubbed social conservatives. >> he has tried to make that outreach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives, done a good job here in iowa. >> reporter: iowa's evangelical voters seem to be moving into mitt romney's camp here in traditionally democratic dubuque, catholic voters we spoke with here are split over issues like abortion, contraception and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues, which many catholics, most catholics hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this bloef that remains that within the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i just think it comes down to that tepgs. >> reporter: how big a role does your catholic religion play in your vote? >> i think it's big. i'm an ex-nun. and i -- the group of nuns that i'm associated with to this day are pushing for obama. >> is the pro choice stance difficult for you to reconcile? >> it was difficult. i
, they overwhelmingly backed santorum, but it seems that they moved into that romney camp, largely because they will oppose obama strongly on the same-sex marriage, and funding for contraception. now the religious vote, when you talk about catholic voters in dubuque, they were not traditionally in the vote, they seem to be split more because how outspoken the president has been on those social issues and health care reform. i will tell you that neither of the groups we have talked to have been thrilled, necessarily, with their choices right now. and i think that is something that is very important, the enthusiasm, to get out to the polls, don was saying that every single vote counts in ohio and here. you need that enthusiasm, and we're not necessarily feeling that in iowa, fred. >> all right, poppy harlow, in dubuque. >>> all right, a critical swing state, yes, florida qualifies. we'll tell you about a sometimes overlooked voting block that could make a difference in the sunshine state.

. you can't tell me that rick santorum or newt gingrich, as much as i like them, would have donnie better. okay? romney was always i'm a redskins fan, a washington redskins fan. he is like donovan mcnabb. he is not the quartback of the future. rg3 is, right? i think it's the same way with the republicans. mitt romneying, they were hoping he could get them a win, but he was never the candidate of the future, and i think that if you look at not just marco rubio, but bobby jindahl, and i would have said chris christie two weeks ago, but today i probably won't. there are strong candidates out there, young republicans, who can appeal to a much wider audience and be inspiring and inspirational. >> i want to bring you into the conversation here. first of all, let's just lay out what things have looked like for the last eight years, and president bush in covering him, he really did a lot of outreach with the hispanic -- 31% latino vote, and mitt romney 27%. that was compared to president obama's 71% here, so matt talks about marco rubio and some of the others in the party. is that the way
